    what i mean is, is it possible to view the stickies, like just so i know what i wrote on them, like in txt format or something...
    i just need to see what i wrote on them. I have macdrive, so if u could tell me where the data for the stickies are, i can navigate there and read what i wrote on the stickies. (downloading stuff so i cant reboot into mac os x)

    The Stickies are saved in the following file

    /Users/username/Library/StickiesDatabase

    You can read the contents in OSX with Textedit however it is not clean, I suspect you could well read it with Notepad in windows.


    If you meant the widget version of stickies then you need to look at the following file

    Users/username/Library/Preferences/widget-com.apple.widget.stickies.plist

    Again it is not clean when opened with a text editor.
